Solar panel integration engineer (internship)

Job description

Introduction & Background 

Vandebron has a mission to go to 100% renewable energy as soon as possible! We deliver electricity to almost 200.000 households and many of our customers have invested in solar panels. Vandebron wants to give extra services to people that have taken the step to produce electricity to compensate their consumption, while earning back their investment as soon as possible. We think we can unlock many more services by letting customers connect their solar panel system to our smart energy platform. This way we can offer near real-time insights in production directly integrated into their Mijn Vandebron dashboard. For Vandebron there would also be a gain because we could use the acquired data for our own solar energy forecasts and trading activities on the energy market. 


Many of the panels manufactures have made API's available that can be integrated with our smart energy platform. Also we could leverage our new Public API portal on developer.vandebron.nl to give manufacturers the ability to integrate with our services.  


  • Investigate for various types of solar panels and inverters how they can be integrated with our platform.
  • Prioritise integration of the different solar panel systems (plan).
  • The assignment will start with this exploration and will continue with a POC using our own office solar panels.
  • Create, with the help of our development teams, an interface between solar panels and our backend.
  • Create a generic interface for our customers to read out their data from their solar panels on Vandebron.nl.
  • Use the gathered data to feed into our forecasting models for solar.
